Repairing W7 Pro x64 Product Key ?

I have my orginal O/S disk that does not have SP1 on it. Can I use another O/S W7Pro x64 disk with SP1 to perform the repair operation. Then will it require me to enter the new product key or can I keep the same orginal product key? Does the program read the product key from the disk?.

I guess my other choice is to uninstalll SP1 & run the repair program from the orginal disk..

You can use the disc with SP1 on it. The key is not on the disc, your key should be okay.
